Today, we have many financial instruments and ready-to-use tools waiting to be connected to a meaningful application for customers. We also have more and more financial data available, giving us fascinating insights into people's economic behavior. Based on these, we can educate people about their spending habits and make more "healthy" decisions.
In some parts of the world, the importance of blockchain is growing steadily, as it helps people save the value of their hyperinflated money. And again, there are many tools waiting to be developed to work with crypto instead of fiat money.
What should be the new standards for banking and financial services?
As everything is getting digital these days we have decided to make HackPrague 2020 entirely online this year. But actually, the main reason is the uncertain situation in the Czech Republic regarding the enormous spread of COVID-19.
However, we believe this setup will enhance the mission of defining the new digital standards for the financial industry and make the event even more impactful
We think of our hackathon as an "invention marathons" where participants have no restraints. Unlike other events, we don’t want you to come up with a startup MVP or a solution to a corporate problem. Unleash your creativity and technical skills!
There are several reasons why you should join a hackathon. You will get free food and snacks for the whole weekend, and you can get to know a lot of new like-minded people and expand your network. You can also extend your skillset and learn a lot of new things while having fun. Lastly, you can add it to your CV and present this experience to your potential employer. Learn more in a blogpost from one of our former hackers.
HackPrague applications are open to all developers and designers, including students and full-time employees. We will select participants based on their past projects, experience, and enthusiasm. We will aim to admit a diverse pool of people.
